Okay blogger friends. I know some of you may not know me well, and think that if you pointed out my errors I would be horribly embarrassed and think you were rude. That couldn't be further from the truth. I am one of those people that greatly appreciates the friend that points out the spinach stuck between my teeth. Granted, I do like the correction to be kind. Mean spirited making fun is not what I have in mind. Oh, and of course discretion is also appreciated. So now that we've got that cleared up. . .
I was just giving The General his spelling words. (I know, most 7th graders don't do spelling, but he's weird and likes it. Who am I to deny him?) Well, pseudonym was one of his words to spell today. When he asked me what it meant, I quickly googled the word to give him an exact definition. Here's what I found: pseudonym n. A fictitious name, especially a pen name.
What is the big deal? Why is that important? I just realized this whole time on my blog side bar, I had written that I'd given my children pseudo names. Very nice home school lady, it should be: I have given my children pseudonyms. Yep, I home school my children. Such a proud day for Mrs. Nomad.
On the up side. . .(the other thing you need to know about me. I'm a hopeless, or shall I say hopeful, optimist) this is exactly why I love teaching my children. I learn new things all the time, and I LOVE IT!
Okay, now I'm totally confused. As I'm spell checking this post, Lord only knows I don't want to misspell words and further my humiliation, psuedo name comes up as a correctly spelled word. So what is the story here masters of the English language? Have I been a bone head, or not?
